Hollywood Celebrities Help Raise $31 Million For IDF
Hollywood celebrities including Jason Alexander, Antonio Banderas, Liev Schreiber, Jason Segel, Mark Wahlberg, and Gene Simmons, have shown their support for Israel by attending the Western Region Gala of the Friends of the IDF, which ended up raising $31 million.
The Beach Boys were among the performers.
Saban, the largest private donator to the IDF, said that particularly at a time when there is a large call to boycott Israel, “we are here to show the amazing support of Hollywood elite and the Jewish community of the US for Israel and IDF soldiers.”
“Recent weeks have proven that the IDF and security forces are firm in defending the state of Israel from all threats, and we are here to give them thanks and support them in all they are required to do,” he said.
